Sketch in Charcoal

12x16
Picked up charcoal after a long time and did this sketch in the morning session.I have missed doing portraits and would love to do some more..This sketch reminded me how much I loved drawing- without the pressure of thinking of converting it into a painting!May be I should keep them separate.

  1. Your work in black and white and in color is so well done - you have a good style and know your materials. I keep my graphite drawings separate from my watercolor paintings, often just a light sketch before painting but more thorough work for a graphite drawing. My portraits are not this good, though.

  6. Arti, your portraits are always amazing. The good thing about being a big girl and being an artist is that you don't have to live by rules or even make your own. You can do what you feel like doing - art-wise - when you feel like doing it!
